Recipe Notes

We'll see how to prepare soup with raw tamarind. Boil cleaned raw tamarind. To a bowl, add raw tamarind and pour water till the raw tamarinds are submerged. Boil till cracks can be found on them. Let it cool down. Prepare masala in the meantime. To a mixie jar, add desired amount of green chillies, i.e., grind some of the green chillies and chop the rest. Add coriander leaves, 2 teaspoons salt or salt to taste, 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds and grind it into a paste. We need to extract juice from the boiled raw tamarind. Mash the boiled raw tamarind with hands. Strain the extracted juice and mash the boiled raw tamarind again by adding more water. Add prepared green chilli masala. Add 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste, 1 teaspoon coriander seeds powder, 1/4 teaspoon cumin-fenugreek seeds powder, curry leaves, diced vegetables of choice, chopped green chillies, and water as desired. Simmer on stove. Sesame seeds powder also could be added for taste. Boil till all the vegetables in the soup are cooked. Salt if wanted could be added. After it has been boiled for 10-15 minutes, add rice flour mixture to thicken it. To a bowl, add 1/2 cup rice flour, 1 cup water and mix. Stir so no lumps are formed and add it to the boiling soup. Directly adding rice flour will create lumps, so we're mixing it in water before hand. Keep stirring while adding the rice flour mixture. Mix till the soup starts to simmer again or else the rice flour will form lumps. Simmering for 2-3 minutes will be enough. We have to add tempering now. To a pan, add 2 tablespoons oil and heat it. Add 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds, 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds, 5-6 red chillies and fry. As red chillies start to change colour, add curry leaves and mix. Add this tempering to simmering soup and mix.
